That should get you the best temps possible. Here's a map of the letters you painted in previously:

B > C > D > E > F > I > K > G > H > A

The top part of the T should go up to your Fillport.
question - sitting the pump on its base - my "B" faces up - and my "A" faces to the side - running to the heatercore i should run B to C?

logically looks like it should be "A" to "C" and the tube coming from the GPU should go to "B"

just verifying you were correct - that i should use B first and A last...

cause to me looks like A should go first and B last...

thanks for the help , really appreciate it.

ok here's the current pics - Im thinking of mounting the pump on the side wall - that would make B - point straight at the heatercore - and A accessible near the GPU-

I do have a slight problem - does it matter where the pump goes?

Most have it on the bottom? Does it need to be on the bottom of the case?

Or does it not matter where it goes?

My sound card and video card extend too far out from the mother board to allow me to put it in the back left corner -

I could put it in the middle bottom of the case - but that just would make the tubes all over the place -

So my best option at this time - is either mounted upside down on the top of case (near PSU)

or mounting it on the side of the case as shown in the picture.

Thanks again - don't know how I'd do this without your help everyone.

Nope, doesn't make a bit of difference, although I wouldn't mount it there on the side, as it's right in the way of all your expansion cards, PCI-E and PCI. I would instead mount it on the bottom, near your heatercore, and see if you can make the bend from B to C.

rgr - i guess i can make it fit next to radiator. Dont want it to fall off the side and land on my video card lol

damn - overtightened the nib on the cpu cooler - snapped it right off the thread gotta wait till monday to get a new part -

got a lot done today however..

here's a layout - situating the power cords and what not -

the last pic - is where im going to try and fit the pump.

and the first shot is the fillport - took out the bay on top - and dremeled enough to make it screw in tightly - even has a lid to snap shut

I'll be getting mine Dec. 25, so I'll let you know then. I wouldn't tighten past 2 threads when you know it's seated on the GPU, GPU's are more fragile than CPUs.

took the gpu off - and put some 1/4" tubing over the standoff rod - attached a vise grip and turned it a few more turns - when tightened and put on - still have like 1" of threaded standoff thread behind the nut and spring.

oh well - guess i could dremel it off later -


OK so got the water in the system - have a few questions -

using the tygon stuff - (this stuff is flexible) the tube leading to the sucking end of my pump - does some weird stuff - i can feel this is where a ton of pressure is being sucked into the pump.. it flattens the tube from my GPU to the pump.. look at this...

Is this normal?

***thumbnails kinda stinky due to low-res -- click these links for high -res

Did i do something wrong? Is it just air in the line?

dont seem to be any air bubbles - i took my time pouring in the water.. made sure i got it in the system before turning pump on - anyways going to post these pics - lay down some toiled paper to test for leaks - and head to bed - see ya in a few hours - hope all goes well - let me know if you have any theories as to why this tube is completely flattened when pump is on...

Don't like the look of that, is there some kind of restriction problem there? You don't have a kink somewhere else in the line do you?

nope - no kinks when pump is off - when i turn it on - that tube goes flat - tried using hard plastic wire loop - but it isnt strong enough...

so i guess i need some stronger tube? i thought tygon was the best...

Can i use that nylon braided tube for this section at home depot?

think normal isnt strong enough...
